    Excellent location in beautiful Woodstock. Also very nice river view and steps away from excellent coffee, restaurants and shops. The hotel is basic - good size clean rooms. Not particularly beautiful or charming. No lobby or other public spaces and no other amenities.

    Room Not as Pictured

    The Standard Room looked nothing like the rooms pictured, even allowing for significant marketing leeway. Exposed and uncomfortable mattress and box spring, dirty fixtures, campsite quality bathroom, and poorly lit.

    Nice view & convenient to village but stiff beds

    Overall nice place, room with a beautiful mountain & river view & convenient walk to the village. The bed was stiff as a board and we did not get a good nights sleep because of this. Firm is one thing, this bed almost seemed hard. Perhaps its because we are softer bed at home.

    Very disappointed in Woodstock

    The keys were taped to the door. The room was certainly not as nice as the picture depicted. It was dirty and outdated and I had to kill several bugs.

  • 4.0.Fair

    There was zero service at the hotel. When I arrived my name was written on a manilla envelope with my key and some info inside. Did not feel very safe - considering anyone has access to my name and key to my room before arrival. There was never anyone physically on property to help with anything or give guidance. And then when I would call the number provided no one picked up (this happened about 4-5 times during my one night stay). I understand safety in this time, but this property did the bare minimum. Also when I returned in the evening all the spots in the lot were taken - again I called for guidance on where to park and no one answered. Finally got out of my car to find a sign to park across the street in the grocery store lot which was inconvenient, especially having to go get my car the next morning to check out.

    The staff at the Shire are very friendly and accommodating. We arrived early in the day and asked to leave the car. They graciously said “of course” and then allowed us to use their facilities, as this is the time of Covid, and so many public facilities are still closed. When we were able to check in it was one with social distancing in mind and we had minimal contact with staff. The rooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable. Would definitely stay here again!

    Cleaning not up to par

    I acknowledge part of this rating is due to Covid, but. ... We pulled in to the curbside check-in, young lady asked our last name, handed us an envelope and said all instructions an in there with your key. Never asked for ID to confirm it was us. It was very impersonal. Even with all the hype about extra cleaning, there was dust on the lamp, garbage left in drawers, a cell phone charger left on floor on far side of bed. Had a window a/c unit, but the accordian part to fill the window was ripped and dirty we used a washcloth to block the hole.. In the shower was an almost empty shower gel pump with dried gel on outside of glass jar. We brought our own, but it was still disappointing to see. I was glad we brought our lysol and sanitizing wipes. We reserved a premiun king room with a view of the river.

    A great place to stay in Woodstock.

    We have been to The Shire a few times. The rooms are nice, clean, and many have a river view. They have a nice lawn on the river with picnic tables and Adirondack chairs for visitors to enjoy. The staff is always nice too.
